Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint, Gesso, Neon on Canvas, Other.

Iridescent and interference acrylic paint on canvas and gesso primer over a wooden frame. Finished with a clear, glossy textured gel, worked with a palette knife.

120 x 50 x 2 cm.

An emotionally inspired piece, with an emphasis on sub-conscious creation and the spiritual, such a work of art is intensely emotional to create. It’s a large sized piece, one that involved careful planning, despite the expression of spontaneity. The activity in the painting was created by the ‘action’ I used: arm and wrist movement, the brushstrokes, splashing and throwing, painting, staining and dripping.

To me, the process of creating such a piece is as important as the finished article. It’s about letting my emotion flow unencumbered, allowing my unconscious to take over from the conscious mind, manifesting in a painting that’s pure creation, not something that’s structured or over-analysed. It represents the true meaning of abstract expressionism, valuing vitality over finish, fluctuation over repose, and the unknown over the known. It’s totally individual, a liberation of light from dark, the colour bursts representing the escape of hope from a void of blackness.
